You don't need a video on how to catch Pokemon. It is reletively simple. First, weaken it with your Pokemon's attacks, then throw a ball. Unless, you want to catch Kyogre. That is harder. If you want to catch Kyogre you need to give it a status condition (Paralyze, Sleep, Burn, Freeze etc.) and weaken it. Then throw an Ultra or Dusk Ball.
